‘Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life’. These wise words uttered by Confucius speak a universal truth. You may be making millions per month, but if you do not love what you do, then you are missing out a great deal in your life. Some may argue that financial realities many not always allow one to pursue the dreams of their choice. True – you need to have a comfortable income. But this does not necessarily mean that you should slave away at a multinational company, or try your hardest to become an engineer, unless you truly love doing so. Here are some examples as to how people pursue their passion while earning a comfortable income.
Being a part of someone’s special moments in life is only second best to experiencing them yourself. This is why most wedding photographers, for an example, love what they do. They get to be a part of someone’s big day, share the tender moments of love and joy and twirl along with them as they dance first as man and wife. Above all, every time the couple goes through the pictures, you will forever be in their hearts.
Moreover, wedding photographers are also much in demand, provided you are committed to what you do and determined to be creative. Thus, if you are talented with your camera, and have a passion to help create beautiful memories, then this is a good profession for you to be in.
You might immediately discard the idea of being a Gardener; but several surveys done on employment satisfaction suggest that Gardeners are one of the most happily-employed in the world. The reason is simple: the sheer delight of getting to see the fruit of your hard work in such blossoming right in front of your eyes!
Gardening is also a very ‘healthy’ job to be engaged in. Not only does it encourage you to be fit and healthy, but it also has the added benefit of having a therapeutic effect on one’s mind.
Moulding a life
The teaching profession is also considered an extremely satisfactory field to be engaged in. Not only do you get to academically explore your favourite subjects, be it History or Science, you also get the chance to significantly impact another person’s life. You are given the chance to be a mentor and a guide, a person who will be lovingly remembered by the students as they make their own in life. Even though being a teacher may not pay you millions, there are significant benefits in the form of long holidays, shorter working hours and the chance to be forever young surrounded by children.
